Unhappy Santa - Sassy Cheryls

When the very talented Cheryl Alger (artist of Sassy Cheryls) asked me to do a little project for her I jumped at the chance, I simply love her work, if you havent yet found her get on over there as you are missing out click here to be taken to her store.
I used the Unhappy Santa with gift and coloured it with Copic Markers, I used a deep Purple card and created the scene with white ink and sponging over torn paper then punched out a circle from scrap paper and sponged through the hole to make the moon, I dabbed the Ink Essentials white pen randomly across the sponged scene for snow and added a star with the came pen.
I added lots of crushed glass glitter for the snow topped roof and added the image seperatly with foam pads to make it a 3d effect.
